Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Total: 30 minutes



  • 1 lb flank steak
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 8 small corn tortillas
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Lime wedges, for serving


  1. In a bowl, combine minced garlic, lime juice, soy sauce, olive oil, cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix well to make the marinade.

  2. Place the flank steak in a resealable bag or a shallow dish, and pour the marinade over the steak. Make sure the steak is well coated. Marinate for at least 1 hour, or overnight in the refrigerator for better results.

  3. Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade, allowing any excess marinade to drip off. Grill the steak for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until it reaches your desired level of doneness. Remove the steak from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing.

  4. While the steak is resting, heat the corn tortillas on the grill or in a dry skillet for about 30 seconds per side, or until warmed through and slightly charred. Keep the tortillas warm by wrapping them in a clean kitchen towel.

  5. Slice the cooked steak against the grain into thin strips.

  6. To assemble the tacos, place a few slices of steak on each warmed tortilla. Top with chopped onions, cilantro, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Serve immediately and enjoy!
